Bannon Stokes French Far-Righters in Nativist Speech

“Let them call you racist. Let them call you xenophobes. Let them call you nativists. Wear it as a badge of honor. Because every day, we get stronger and they get weaker.”

— Former Trump adviser Stephen Bannon, quoted by ABC News, speaking to French far-right politicians.

Poetic Justice

The -Istist of the -Ists

We thought Donald Trump was a capitalist,
But now we’re told he’s a populist nationalist.
With Priebus his wing man,
And Bannon his string man,
Is it a surprise the terms rhyme with fascist.

Seething Morass of -Isms

Here at the dawn of the demise of Republicanism,
The media describe Election 2016 in strings of -isms.
When it comes to Donald Trump,
The -isms just get dumped,
Into a seething morass of fascism, narcissism, nativism and racism.
